Leeds United host Reading at the Elland Road in the midweek action. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have rejuvenated their push for the automatic promotion spot and the club are just three points behind table leaders Norwich City coming into this match. Reading remain very close to the drop zone but only goal difference separates them from Bolton in the 22nd spot. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leeds United made the most of Josh Brownhill’s red card to pick up a 2-0 win over Bristol City at home during the weekend. For long periods of the game, Leeds did not look like getting their third victory in five matches.
Reading were able to hold Wigan for a goalless draw at the DW Stadium. This result produced a third game without a defeat for Reading.
The recent meeting between Reading and Leeds United produced a 2-2 draw at the Madejski Stadium. Reading were able to claim a 1-0 victory when they last visited Elland Road. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Reading are given a price of 10.00 to win the match. The likelihood of an away victory is very low with Leeds only losing only once at home this season. Reading have also managed just one away victory in the 2018-19 season. At the same time, Leeds are also not available at a great price for a win. Marcelo Bielsa’s men may have picked up a win over Bristol during the weekend, but they require the assistance of a red card. The choices in the final third were not up to the mark and our preview would go with a draw.

Leeds United win odds: 1.40
Reading win odds: 10.00
Correct Score odds
Reading are near the bottom three but they are certainly not among the lowest scorers in the division. The Royals have fared well with 24 goals from the 18 matches. After starting well offensively, Leeds have suddenly lost their way in recent weeks. Both Reading and Leeds have scored the same number of goals (9) in the last six matches and it is a testament to their current form. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
All of the last four home matches for Leeds United have been low on goals. In fact, the games against Preston and Birmingham are two examples of a high-scoring match at Elland Road since the middle of August. We do not expect this to change especially with a Reading team not renowned for goals. Our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe is the top scorer at Leeds United with eight league goals. After a spell on the sidelines due to an injury, the 25-year-old is fit and firing on all cylinders. He has scored in four out of his last five games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kemar Roofe.
